* Where the ''hell'' do the various police departments in the ''Franchise/NeedForSpeed'' series get their [[HammerspacePoliceForce infinite supplies]] of [[CoolCar Z06 Corvettes]] to throw at the street racers? You'd think at some point the taxpayer funding would run dry after procuring fleets of $100K sports cars. And, in the same vein, in the games where Cops are playable, where do they even get all the same rare, expensive-as-shit (like the Pagani Zonda Cinque, of which only five were ever made, being somehow available as a police unit) hypercars as the racers?

** The {{Trope Namer|s}} is SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in Tim Burton's ''Film/{{Batman}}''. In one scene Batman rescues reporter Vicki Vale from the Joker's clutches using a zipline gun, and the Joker asks his men "Where does he get those wonderful toys?"

* For costumes, heroes and villains alike go to Leo Zelinsky, a tailor in Brooklyn who became the most popular outfitter for superhuman clothing after the Thing visited his shop. Being GenreSavvy enough to avoid conflicts, he alternates days, opening his shop for bad guys on Saturdays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, and for heroes on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. (He sees nothing wrong with this - he's just a guy trying to make a living.)

* In ''Literature/TheAuthorities'', all the cool gear that the titular investigative team uses is made by [[GadgeteerGenius Albert]], who explains that he has been inspired to make gadgets the very first time he has ever seen a ''JamesBond'' film... and wanted to be Q. He even mocks being upset and quotes Desmon Llewelyn's character whenever Rutherford ends up accidentally damaging his gear. He is ecstatic when Rutherford finally realizes what he's doing and plays along.

* To answer Jim Steinman, Chicago likely gets all that meat from Texas, Kansas City and other places around it. Most cattle drives historically ended in Chicago, which around the beginning of the 20th century was the second largest city in the US after New York and remained so until Los Angeles overtook it in the 1980s (hence its nickname "The Second City"), making it the logical place for these ranches to drive their cattle to. Adidas of course has advertising. [[DontExplainTheJoke Not that anyone asked...]]
